=head1 NAME

File::Serialize::Serializer - Role for defining File::Serialize serializers

=head1 VERSION

version 1.3.0


    package File::Serialize::Serializer::MySerializer;

    use Module::Runtime qw/ use_module /;

    use Moo;

    with 'File::Serialize::Serializer';

    sub extensions { 'mys' }

    sub init { use_module('SomeThing') }

    sub serialize { ...}
    sub deserialize { ...}



This role is used to define serializers for L<File::Serialize>.

As all the serializer plugins are typically loaded to figure out which one
should be used to serialize/deserialize a specific file, it's important that
the modules on which the serializer depends are not just C<use>d, but are rather
marked for import via the C<required_modules> and C<init> functions.

=head2 Required methods

A serializer should implement the following class methods:


=item extensions

Required. Must return a list of all extensions that this serializer can deal with. 

The first
extension of the list will be considered the canonical extension.

=item required_modules

Returns the list of modules that this serializer needs to operate.

If not provided, the required module will be extracted from the package name.
I.e., the serializer L<File::Serialize::Serializer::YAML::Tiny> will assume
that it requires L<YAML::Tiny>.

=item serialize( $data, $options )

Required. Returns the serialized C<$data>. 

=item deserialize

Required. Returns the deserialized C<$data>. 

=item groom_options( $options )

Takes in the generic serializer options and groom them for 
this specific one.

=item groom_serialize_options( $options )

Groom the options for this specific serializer. If not
provided, C<groom_options> is used.

=item groom_deserialize_options( $options )

Groom the options for this specific serializer. If not
provided, C<groom_options> is used.


=head2 Provided methods

The role provides the following attributes / methods:


=item precedence 

Returns the serializer's precedence, used to determine which one of the available
serializer for a format to use. Default to C<100>. A value of C<0> means "don't use".
